What the team is known for

Operating out of its Brussels office, CMS's new technology group focuses on issues surrounding the regulatory aspects of tokens, digital identity and GDPR. Its expertise in handling substantial initial coin offerings continues to be a key pillar of the firm's offering, with CMS being one of the first firms in Belgium to organise a client event on the various technical, legal and tax implications of ICOs.

Strengths

"CMS is definitely doing more product-focused work for its clients, more so than most."

"We're moving our business to Belgium as a result of Brexit, and CMS has been very helpful, knowledgeable and fast in assisting in our interactions with local regulators."
